This is fantastic info on the flares. I am going to do a bunch of work to my truck this weekend, so I will report back.

I might even try this on the grill.

Your AC compressor is faulty .... probably a bearing failure or something.

Get it replaced.

I ill get the compressor looked at. Having some cold air blowing on me without totally robbing power would be excellent in this heat.

I took some compound to my hood this afternoon and the news is not great, but could be worse. I do think this truck had some initial body work done, and I think some cc was used. I will take pics tomorrow. I also picked up the necessary wheel flare supplies

are the rear flairs held in with the plastic rivet thingy's? I know the front are screwed in but the rears look like they are plastic snap rivets.

I will get pics up tomorrow.

They are held in with plastic rivets. They are a PITA to remove without destroying them.

I have a AA yellow truck as well. I'm getting some touch up paint prepped at the body shop and after looking up the paint code online I can confirm that the 95 yellow does have a clear coat.

That is extremely helpful, Regarding the technical info. I think it is time to take this to my local paint and body guys and see what they can do. My logic is that I will happily repair my fender flairs. If I screw up, I am out what I had planned anyway. Clear coat failure, and my failure sounds to expensive.

One of my favorite mods was from Safari HP that had a metal replacement cowl for the instrument cluster that replaces the plastic one that is almost always broken (or soon to break). Not sure if they are still making them, but I love that it was available when he made the run. Maybe check his site at safarihp.com

Glad it was helpful. Remember to give the fenders a good key before painting them. Also, be sure to paint when the temperature is cooler otherwise you risk it coming out duller.

I decided to postpone the fenders until this 4th of july week.
Hare are some after pics of the hood. Hard to tell, but it is for sure better, but still showing problems signs.

The fenders showing damage "before"

The inside which is rough.

The dash.

The steering wheel.

The door panels.
